Anesthesiology Shadowing


Shadowing of anesthesiology faculty can be arranged for interested students based on their schedule and interests. This is an ongoing, flexible opportunity for Med 1 and 2 students to explore anesthesiology prior to clinical rotations. Any interested student is encouraged to contact the shadowing coordinator or faculty advisor.

Tips for the Shadowing Experience

  • Bring your Med ID badge and wear scrubs.
  • Don’t be afraid to ask questions or help out.

Student Feedback

Shadowing does help! If a student is interested in anesthesiology, many would recommend shadowing because one day actually may be enough to get a feel for what anesthesiologists do. By shadowing for a short amount of time, a student would be able to better assess whether he/she would want to select anesthesiology as a third year elective.
